Nigeria looks at Thunder

The Nigerian Air Force (NAF) is reportedly close to securing an order with the Pakistan Aeronautical Complex (PAC) for JF-17 Thunder Block 3 fi ghters.
An NAF official has revealed that the air arm has recommended acquisition of 25-40 JF-17s to equip two squadrons, following a visit by the chief of the NAF to Pakistan in October.
As we also reported last month, Nigeria is also considering purchasing the Textron AirLand Scorpion light strike and surveillance aircraft in order to better combat Islamist militants in the country.
An NAF officer announced details of the service’s requirement for an armed rapid response capability, to be met initially through a squadron of Scorpions.

In related news, AgustaWestland has sold to the NAF two of the AW101 helicopters intended for the Indian Air Force’s VVIP requirement.

:D Hi I have just finished pt 7 of CWA Nigeria campaign on youtube). It totally blew me away :oops:

I am now hooked on CMANO

I had seen other war games some years ago but thought they were too trivial to waste time on, so I came on this by accident thru Steam and will be buying and I hope participating in the future. Thanks a billion Baloogan, your campaign is mustard

Thanx, will continue trawling you tube for more of your vids, this is worse than crack

May I take this chance to ask you if any scenarios have been made using our Trident Nuke sub. As you probably know we have a big controversy over the renewal of contracts costing ca £100 billion. Some say this is a very old dated cold war technology that should be scrapped. We dont even have ASW enough to protect them anyway and have to beg favours from our allies

viewtopic.php?f=7&t=123&hilit=trident

Pls advise :roll:

A friend of mine, Kushan, also has a Command-focused youtube channel. Definitely worth checking out!
This vid here is about a scenario from the new Command game Northern Inferno, called "Goblin on the Doorstep"

Hi B

Have followed you link and watched the K vid. It struck me that the Trident Nuke sub was something of a paradox? It seemed to require a whole arsenal of surface and airborn stuff to keep it safe. Its just as vulnerable to ASW as conventional subs. I thought the whole idea was for a sub to sneak around undetected. It seems getting out of Faslain requires a huge noisy fanfare before getting to deep water. How can you have a secret weapon if its broadcast like that.

Someone has really goofed. I was told you could buy 100+ modern conventional subs

More simulation needed :roll:

Has anyone done a simulation of the Falklands Campaign?
